Palm leaf.; 6 or 7 lines on a page. Manuscript consists of the Pañcanadamāhātmya from the Tīrthapraśaṃsā of the Brahmakaivarta-purāṇa, incomplete and very incorrect. Winternitz notes that ff.. 16, 82, 214 are missing; ff.106, 108, 124 occur twice; ff.104, 107, 109, 198, 211, 212 and 213 are misplaced; he also notes that the MS. is written by two different hands, and that it looks as if original lacunae had been supplied by a more recent hand. The end is missing.
